“Standing Together: Moving Forward” will be the theme of the Seventh Annual Shabbat St. Louis community worship experience during Passover. This year’s event will take place Saturday, April 4 at Temple Emanuel, 12166 Conway Road.   

The event will begin at 9 a.m. with Torah study led by area rabbis. The Shabbat service will start at 10 a.m. and will include festival liturgy for the first day of Passover. Adults and youth representing Reform and Reconstructionist congregations from St. Louis and Southern Illinois, and students from the Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School will lead the service, with musical accompaniment by the band HaShemesh. A Passover Kiddush will follow. 

Shabbat St. Louis is open to the community.  All ages are welcome.  The service will be sign-interpreted.  

Those attending Shabbat St. Louis are asked to bring a donation of non-perishable food to benefit The Food Pantry at St. Stephens Episcopal Church in Ferguson.

Shabbat St. Louis aims to encourage collaboration, strengthen the Jewish community, and enrich the celebration of Shabbat.
